The meaning of the name Dixie is From The South In The U.S.. The origin of the name Dixie is French. This is the culture in which the name originated, or in the case of a word, the language.
Louisiana issued a ten dollar bill called the "Dix" -- the French word for ten. The bills were often nicknamed "Dixies" like we would say "fivers" now. The South then became known as "Dixieland" or "Dixie" for short.
